I ran across AORTA as a potentially improved replacement for Torsocks.


Note to the author of AORTA (Rob van der Hoeven), I've had AORTA to  
work on CentOS 7 which shows a kernel version 3.10 but RedHat often  
backports lots of features into older versioned software. This might  
be worth noting on the webpage.

**Did anyone else check out AORTA or review its code? Not so much a  
coder here, I would like to listen to community response/review of  
this tool.

I had one (chroot?) situation it worked better than Torsocks. But the  
author doesn't go into detail about his technique of Torification vs.  
Torsocks. How does it work? Why is it supposed to work under more  

Also wonder, what exactly the software does when testing if "Tor  
handles all Internet traffic"? Is it necessary, what are the  
consequences of using -c to disable the test?
